Is the New Terrorist Threat to the State Dept a Psychological operations (PSYOPs) on the Public?

Is it just an amazing coincidence that suddenly as the NSA and the administration is under intense scrutiny by congress and by the public that suddenly they announce a massive terrorist threat against our African and Middle Eastern Embassies? According to Reuters:
While the U.S. State Department routinely releases what it describes as a "Worldwide Caution" warning U.S. citizens of the general potential danger of attacks around the world, Friday's travel alert was based on more specific information, said one U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity.
So in other words they issue these warnings all the time, but somehow this one warranted a full scale media blitz? You have the New York Times, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News covering it like these reports were somehow a rare or unusual event, which is exactly what the Obama Administration and the NSA wants. Another massive clue from the Reuters story is "one U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity". Considering President Obama's War on Whistleblowers what is the chance of this leak not coming straight from the White House? Answer: ZERO.

Psychological operations (PSYOPs) are planned operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.

There are several types of PSYOPs, white, gray, and black. White is acknowledged as an official statement or act of the U.S. Government, or emanates from a source associated closely enough with the U.S. Government to reflect an official viewpoint. The information should be true and factual, but isn't. It also includes all output identified as coming from U.S. official sources like the main stream media who repeats the story ad nauseum.

Authorized to engage in white activity directed at foreign audiences are: The State Department, USIA, the Foreign Operations Administration (a predecessor of the Agency for International Development), the Defense Department and other U.S. Government departments and agencies as necessary.
